Police Use of Force Part 1 – Understanding the Use of Force Continuum

TASA ID: 321

We are living in a time when our police force is coming under great scrutiny and criticism for their actions. One question that keeps coming up is “was the use of force utilized by the police justified”? While the public may not understand or even agree, law enforcement agencies do have policies and guidelines that cover their use of force. Officers who find themselves in a situation where they are required to take a criminal into custody or defend themselves must determine how to handle a potentially dangerous rapidly changing split second situation. These policies, known as the Use of Force Continuum, outline the correct actions that should be taken by a law enforcement officer if a situation should arise that requires the use of force.

CNN Money[1] recently announced, "For entrepreneurs, cycling is the new golf." In fact, Google that thought and you will see quite a few references.

To put that in perspective, there are far more cyclists in America than golfers, tennis players and skiers combined.  The participation profile indicates many more adults, from their mid-20s through their mid-60s are now riding and even racing bikes.  While a lot of us are enjoying our bicycles, we cannot forget the ever present risks.  Many of the new crop of mature freedom-loving riders are more secure financially, so those risks are worth calculating.

How safe is "locally grown" food?  Who is responsible for the safety of locally grown food?  What food safety guidelines or regulations are in place to guide food processors that sell food locally? Are local merchants or retail grocery chains liable for sourcing food that is locally grown by suppliers with inadequate systems? Those are the questions surrounding the phenomenon of "locally grown" food that litigators will seek answers to in a court of law.

Investigating Product Failure: Understanding the Development of a New Product

TASA ID: 79

Unlike Athena, a new product does not spring, fully formed, from the brow of the Vice President of Marketing. Most likely it arrives prematurely and requires heroic efforts just to survive.  Usually, but not always, its problems and weaknesses will have been resolved by the time it's released for sale:  The operative phrase being "Usually, but not always."
